I would say an average amount DH has paid in the past has been $150-$250. So, yes, it does seem like a lot to me.

Both expenses (the suit and the bachelor party) are crazy expensive. In my area, suit/tux rental ranges from $100-250 and suit purchase starts at $200+. Bachelor/bachelorette parties typically run $50-150 for a night out or $200-500 for a weekend away. You can sure as heck bet that a couple that requires a $500+ suit purchase is delusional if they think their friends should also drop $500+ on a weekend away.

Candice1990:  I think the suit price is reasonable, as he’ll likely wear it again and my FIs suits cost a lot more so something under a $1000 sounds like a great price! I also think that $620 is reasonable for 2 nights away..

HOWEVER, the cost of these two items together is a lot. Its especially a lot of money to fork over for someone elses wedding, perhaps I’m just lucky and haven’t been in any weddings that required a huge financial committment but this sounds very expensive.

That sounds like a lot to me, but the main issue is, I think, why the cost of this weekend wasn’t made clear to everyone in advance rather than sprung on them at the last minute. Not cool.

Candice1990:  I’m in Canada and the last wedding my fiance stood in cost him about $1000-1200 give or take. The bachelor party was about $500, suit rental was only $150-200 than there was transportation (wedding was 2 hrs away), any additional meal costs where they weren’t provided a meal, accomodations etc. Everything always adds up. I know my fiance just had his bachelor party and for 2 days they easily spent over $500. If your fiances brother’s best man is anything like my fiances best man, they waited to what seems to be the last minute to plan everything.  Your fiance can always choose not to go. Yes its his brother’s bachelor party but at the same time, a bachelor party is not a requirement to stand in a wedding, specially when struggling with the money.
